THE fourth national Veterans Day, now renamed Armed Forces Day, takes place tomorrow (Friday).
Welwyn Hatfield mayor Kim Langley is inviting veterans and current serving members of the forces living in the borough to attend a special reception, at the Terrace Suite at Campus West, WGC, at 12.45pm.
Cllr Langley said: "I look forward to meeting current and former military personnel, and hearing about their experiences, which I'm sure will demonstrate their courage and professionalism under sometimes very difficult circumstances.
"There are still so many troops serving overseas, the enormous debt that society owes our armed forces who have faithfully served their country should not be forgotten and their achievements celebrated."
A buffet and refreshments will be provided, and there will be a licensed bar.
If you would like to attend the reception, please contact Caroline Jenkins, the mayor's secretary on 01707 357419 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
